Has potential.  Howard Davies can do (almost) no wrong at the moment.  His Private Lives with Duncan and Rickman was great.  McNally can be brilliant (Ivanov).  Northam hasn't been on stage for yonks - since some small thing at the Almeida a long time ago Certain Young Men by Peter Gill?

Old Times at the Donmar in 2004. It was performed behind a screen which was pretty well the most annoying thing I've ever seen on stage.

Kevin's a definite...and you are correct, he was amazing in 'Ivanov'.


Still checking on Jeremy Northam's part.

I'll be there! Howard Davies Private Lives was sublime and if I can't have Rickman again then Northam and McNally will certainly do.

Lindsay Duncan and Jeremy Northam will make a fantastic couple, but Northam's part has to be the weakest of the Coward parts....it's basically not a very big part, as it's really Judith's play. The Royal Exchange did a good version a few years back with wonderful Ben Keaton and Belinda lang. Incidentally the guy who played the son in that production and really made something of it, Chris New, has just finished in their stunning Edward II. He was extraordinary, and had a moment after the poker scene that every audience is still trying to work out how it was achieved.

He's also very good in the film Weekend which was released a few weeks ago.
